In te, Domine, speravi

The appointed psalm for this morning is the text of one of my favorite bits of choral music, this gem by Josquin. If you are fortunate enough to be in a place where the choir will sing this during mass, think of me whilst you’re listening.

  1. Ah! Beautiful.

    I went the opposite way today, on verse 12 (“Be not far from me, O God; come quickly, O my God, to help me.” (NIV) and then worked around a theme from a contemporary pop-translation in which the Psalmist tells God – “Hey! Don’t just watch from the sidelines! Get over here and HELP me!”

    That is perfection.

    We do sing the Psalms at St. Mark’s in Seattle, often using the settings by Peter Hallock, whom we honored recently with an all Peter Hallock concert. However, this morning, An Anglican chant setting by Ivor Atkins was used.
